In the Marvellous Birds anthology you’ll find stories written in term-long programs by Year Six students from Blaxcell St Public, Dawson Public, Plumpton Public and Punchbowl Public. The stories explore themes such as community, friendship, migration and the challenge of new adventures – all through the eyes of the marvellous, mysterious (and occasionally menacing!) birdlife of the world.
As you delve into these stories expect humour, excitement, adventure, friendship and feathers of all kinds. Enjoy!
“To watch the children’s growth of imagination and confidence in writing was an amazing adventure.”
“Participating in the Marvellous Birds project was the highlight of the term for my class. They loved the opportunity to explore their creative side and develop their capacity as writers. The look of pride and excitement on their faces when they received their published works was golden.”
